 India, is a vast and splendid land of divergent cultures and cuisines – or, as Paul William Roberts would say, to the “empire of the soul.” We’ll steer you through a spectacular labyrinth of sights and mysteries to bring out the wonders of this sub-continent: battlements of Rajasthan's opulent palaces, the Taj Mahal and Varanasi on the Ganges River in the north; wild jungles and tiger habitats of central India; and tropical Malabar backwaters and plantations of the Spice Hills in the south. You’ll be enveloped by the warmth and hospitality of India’s people: in the old city of Jodphur where you’re invited to the private home of the Sankahla family for lunch; in Bandhavharh and Kanha National parks when the local guides and conservationist detail passionately their struggle to bring tigers back from the brink of extinction; and in the rural villages of Rajasthan when we dine with royal family descendants who tell us about daily Indian life.

7 Days 7 Chakras: Yoga in Goa

7 Days 7 Chakras: Yoga in Goa
Jen and Heather got it Goain’ on with yoga in Goa! The inspiration for our 2 week yoga and cultural trip to India started with our son’s high school journalism teacher turned yoga instructor. Jen Mitchell just retired from teaching high school on the eve of this trip after having successfully started Twist Yoga several years ago, a vinyasa yoga studio in our hometown of Edmonds, WA. Together with her business partner, Heather Falcon, they have been offering yoga retreats in Hawaii and Oregon, and this was their first international yoga retreat. They designed the yoga program at Ashiyana Yoga and Spa Village in north Goa and asked us if we would set up a post-retreat cultural adventure to Varanasi, the Taj Mahal and Delhi. The trip sold out quickly. Although Anne and I were not originally planning to go, it took little convincing by other participants on the trip to...

Mumbai: More Than a Stopover

Mumbai: More Than a Stopover
Mumbai is becoming a more frequent stopover for international arrivals on trips to India, like our connection through Dubai on Emirate Air. Also when traveling between northern and southern India domestic flights often connect through Mumbai including our flights between Goa-Delhi-Varanasi. But Mumbai is much more than an overnight connection. While Delhi is India’s political capital, Mumbai is its commercial and financial capital with more industry and export than any other city of India by far: With over 12 million registered residents (and there are always many more people living in Indian cities who are not officially registered), Mumbai is the largest city in India, the center of Bollywood, and contains one of the largest slums in the world. If you’re flying through Mumbai you can simply stay overnight at the JW Marriott on the coast not far from the airport or at any number of comfortable brand hotels near the new...

Kama Sutra Valentines

Kama Sutra Valentines
Nothing like starting with chocolate and ending with more chocolate. We just finished a two week  India yoga and cultural adventure through southern and northern India that was so relaxed and frenetic, deeply spiritual and perplexing, fun and despairing, and at times challenging, but every day provided one unexpected and insightful adventure after another. As a traveler if you are open to the experience India inevitably presents it teaches us in so many ways. And I know from previous travels here that nothing is as it seems and like our guide Herendra told us when someone commented on pigeons flying overhead, “Everything has meaning.” On this last night of our Yoga Cultural Adventure it was Valentine’s Day, Scott’s birthday, and our 26th wedding anniversary so we needed a place to celebrate life and love! But of course, here in the heartland of the Kama Sutra, every restaurant was full of friends,...

My Insights From India

  Let me start by saying India never ceases to amaze me! My recent trip gave me some great insights and ideas for exploring the wonders of the vast subcontinent. I spent my trip rambling through Rajasthan, reconnecting with our guides, meandering through villages, and checking in at our favorite boutique properties. There is always some new and spectacular that reveals itself during my travels and that is what makes India such an incredible destination.   Our Tigers and Travels Adventure is an in-depth exploration of India's rich natural and cultural heritage: standing in awe at the Taj Mahal, watching the sunrise on the Ganges River in Varanasi, ambling among forts and villages of Rajasthan, and venturing deep into the jungles Kanha and Bandavgarh National Parks in search of the Bengal tiger. You just can't find anything like India anywhere else in the world. We want to fill the remaining spaces...

Traveling to India is never just a vacation, it's an opportunity to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, tastes and spirit of divergent ancient cultures. Our 19-day Tigers and Travels Adventure is the most comprehensive and in-depth exploration of India's rich natural and cultural heritage.
